My urine smells like burning plastic

I went to the toilet a couple of times this morning and as I was urinating I got a strong odour that smelled like burning plastic, rubber or something similiar. It was disgusting. I thought maybe the fan had overheated or something and then I realised that it was my urine. I went again and got the same smell and I just went again and smelled it again.

I looked back at what I'd eaten over the last few days and figured something out. For the past couple of days I've been addicted to bananas and have been eating one every day, sometimes two. I know that bananas contain potassium and heard that you pass it through the urine. I'm really hoping that this is true, because no one ever said that too many bananas was bad for you. However, I'm no expert on health and I'm basically just clutching at straws here.

Is there anything else I should know about? I was just wondering if this could be a symptom of something more serious.
